Paperchase All Sorts Laptop Bag
Advantages: Funky designs, great price
Disadvantages: Not the best for heavy duty protection
I've recently purchased a new 17" laptop which quite frankly cost me so much I've been wary to take it anywhere further than my room, however as I was browsing through the Paper chase sale I saw a laptop case, just as the one pictured but in black and yellow reduced to just £6. This may not sound like a good bargain to those who own average sized 15" laptops, but believe me it is a nightmare trying to find a nice looking laptop case to fit a 17", especially for a price like this!
These cases are available in various sizes and colours to suit anyone, however I found that there were several designs which were not sold in a 17" size, so make sure you check the size before setting your heart on a particular design! Luckily for me I found that there was so much choice that I wasn't disappointed.
I found that the fit of the case was fairly tight however it closes with just enough room to not damage or scratch my laptop. There isn't enough room for both the laptop and the cable lead as it is designed to have the same properties as a laptop sleeve but with the additional handle and carry strap for travelling convenience. The case fastened with a zip line which starts in the middle of both sides of the case. There are two zip fasteners which I find is convenient to quickly get my laptop in and out without mixing up the right side for the zip.
I decided that this was the case/bag for me as the material has a failry thick padding on it to ensure small knocks (like an accidental band on the car door, or a tap to the chair leg) doesn't scratch or dent the laptop when it's inside. the padding is also a bonus as it doesn't bruise your leg or side after carrying it around all day which is great for people like me who are constantly on the go.
The case comes with a removable black strap which I personally would expect anyway as I don't see any point in just simply having a sleeve. The strap is adjustable to suit all heights and sizes and the width is generous so it doesn't cut into your shoulder too much, however I would suggest that if you're sensitive to weight or plan on carrying your laptop very long distances to get a padding patch like those for car seats to optimize comfort.
Overall this case is pretty basic and doesn't go above and beyond what I expected, however it has kept my laptop safe on short journey's and has done what i bought it to do. If you are looking for extensive protection and performance then this probably isn't the case for you, but for just £6 in the sale it's worth picking one up just for those minor occasions.
